Guest:  Dr. Bruce Cordell. Topics:  Space Trends for 2013 & the coming period of Ebullience for grand space projects.  Please direct all comments and questions regarding Space Show programs/guest(s) to the Space Show blog, https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com.  Comments and questions should be relevant to the specific Space Show program.

We welcomed back Dr. Bruce Cordell to discuss the ten major space trends for 2013 and the Maslow Window forecast for a coming period of ebullience, economic boom, and large space projects.  For more information, visit his website, www.21stcenturywaves.com.  His article titled “10 Space Trends for 2013 – Featuring the Approach of the New International Space Age can be found at http://21stcenturywaves.com/2013/02/13/state-of-the-wave-10-space-trends-for-2013-featuring-the-approach-of-the-new-international-space-age.  During the first half of our two hour discussion, Dr. Cordell took us through the history of his development of fractal Maslow Window forecasts, plus the historical data used to predict a Maslow Window.  After his introduction, we then talked about Mars and the excitement surrounding Mars with the Curiosity rover and the newly announced Inspiration Mars HSF mission Mars flyby per Dennis Tito.  Dr. Cordell spent considerable time connecting the dots for us to the importance of the Inspiration Mars mission & the coming predicted boom and period of ebullience.  Michael Listener called in to suggest the possibility of the government not providing a launch license for the Inspiration Mars launch.  This sparked an intense discussion regarding the likelihood of the government blocking such a mission.

In our second segment, Dr. Cordell talked about the space relationship to the war threats made North Korea and Iran.  Here, he connected the dots to the U.S. B2 Korean flyover and the Iranian and N. Korea threats to precursors that show up before the boom and period of ebullience.  He cited the Cuban Missile Crisis as an example prior to Apollo.  Again citing the precursors, he suggested that the “bumpy road” most always led to the boom period.  Several email listener questions came in regarding the U.S. & global economic condition & how it impacted his forecast.  Here, he referenced panics before each boom.  Bruce suggested we would be entering the period of ebullience around 2014 or 2015 but he also cited some reasons why the period could possibly be delayed, thus appearing much later.  But he definitely cited periods of financial panic as precursors to the boom periods.  He also talked about geopolitical events & their influence, including the role of conflicts.  Near the end of our program, he talked about the importance of the 2014 elections & our then had more to say about the Tito Mars flyby mission.

Guest:  Dr. Bruce Cordell.  Topics:  Using Maslow Windows to determine future space exploration and development trends.  You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright. We welcomed back Dr. Bruce Cordell to discuss new information pointing to a boom period of space exploration and development based on the trend analysis using Maslow Windows.  During the first part of our discussion with Dr. Cordell, he went over Maslow Windows, what they are and why they can be used to suggest a coming boom period in space exploration/development.  You can learn more about Maslow Windows and his work from his website, http://21stcenturywaves.com.  He talked about the need for optimism and also told us what to look for in terms of precursors to the boom period.  As you will hear, some of the precursors are very disruptive, even similar to what is going on in our economy today.  Bruce then went into his latest post on his website, “State of the Wave: 10 Space Trends for 2012.”  We managed to get through most of the ten trends during both segments of our discussion, starting with #10 “Phobos-Grunt Symbolized A Key Approach To Mars Exploration.”  As you will hear, Bruce spent some time talking about the trends, his analysis of them, and some of the specifics underlying why he selected the item as a trend with his Maslow Windows analysis.  Rather than go through each of the trends in this summary, I suggest you open up his website document regarding these 10 trends as you are listening to the discussion.  Of the trends discussed in the first segment, we focused onChina and also  #8, Critical States.

In the second segment, a listener asked Bruce how he knew the boom would be in space rather than the more typical terrestrial industrial economy.  Don’t miss what Dr. Cordell had to say about this.  Bruce then returned to discussing the issue of critical states and the role they play in the economy as well as in political policy.  Wild card items came up many times during the discussion, especially in the second segment.   Euro zone issues topped the list for the wild card discussions.  Another key trend talked about in this segment was #7, “Nasa’s Kepler Discoveries Trigger A Copernican-level Expansion of Worldviews.”  In fact, a good portion of the rest of the program as well as callers focused in on this trend, the discovery of Earth-like planets, and even the search for ET.  Dr. Cordell put forth many theories including those that we are alone in the universe and why that is so.  This is a discussion you will certainly want to hear.  Near the end of the program, we advanced to the #1 trend, “Several Wildcards Could Dramatically InfluenceU.S. and Global Trends in 2012 and Beyond.”  Here, Dr. Cordell talked about political realignments, the importance of our 2012 elections, and that people tend to support those that lead us to prosperity.  Since that can be subjective among the voters, Dr. Cordell did elaborate on it before our program ended.
